COMMENT: This can be Manchester City's season in the Premier League

COMMENT: This can be Manchester City's season in the Premier League”

Chelsea will begin the season without two players integral to their Premier League winning squad of 2017 - Nemanja Matic and Diego Costa.

Manchester United had a disappointing league campaign during 2016/17 but they were absolved by an impressive Europa League win in May. Chances are that Amex Stadium will be rocking in Brighton's first ever Premier League game and the hosts hope that hostile atmosphere will prevent Manchester City from showing all they've got.

Have your say by voting clubs up and down, depending on where you think they will finish come May 13, 2018.

Huddersfield Town - Aaron Mooy has been one of its big signings and he was terrific last season, but it's going to be a tough one in the Premier League for it. Make no mistake, for teams like Huddersfield success is staying up.

Assuming Rudiger starts ahead of Cahill, Chelsea under Antonio Conte have fully embraced the "expensive defender" model, with a pair of bargains in the form of Thibaut Courtois and Cesar Azpilicueta.

City manager Pep Guardiola has raided the continent, signing Monaco duo Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy, Real Madrid's Danilo and Benfica's Ederson, with Tottenham's Kyle Walker bringing the spending spree to $335 million.

The Seagulls needed quite some time to return to elite division after enjoying the most successful period between 1979 and 1983, showing a great deal of character to recover from some narrow misses and finally secure promotion to the Premier League.

Liverpool held on to fourth place a year ago and will need to make the most of Champions League football while they have it.

Though Arsenal may be aided by missing out on the Champions League for first time on Arsene Wenger's watch, the Gunners must retain Chilean star Alexis Sanchez.

Here he picks his Premier League teams to beat, bolter to watch out for and the clubs set for relegation.

Jose Mourinho has a lot of work on to achieve top four this year and with signings like Romelu Lukaku the hard work may pay off.

Do you agree with this assessment?
